We propose an analytical model to estimate the synthesized view quality in 3D video. The model relates errors in the depth images to the synthesis quality, taking into account texture image characteristics, texture image quality, and the rendering process. Especially, we decompose the synthesis distortion into texture-error induced distortion and(More)
Tagging technique is widely used to annotate objects in Web 2.0 applications. Tags can support web service understanding, categorizing and discovering, which are important tasks in a service-oriented software system. However, most of existing web services' tags are annotated manually. Manual tagging is time-consuming. In this paper, we propose a novel(More)
Human eyes have different sensitivity to different frequency components of image signals, typically, low frequency components are relatively more crucial to the perceptual quality of images than high frequency components. Based on this observation, we propose a novel sampling scheme for compressive sensing framework by designing a weighting scheme for the(More)
The past decade has witnessed the increasing demands on data-driven business intelligence that led to the proliferation of data-intensive applications. A managed object-oriented programming language such as Java is often the developer's choice for implementing such applications, due to its quick development cycle and rich community resource. While the use(More)
Real-world data-parallel programs commonly suffer from great <i>memory pressure</i>, especially when they are executed to process large datasets. Memory problems lead to excessive GC effort and out-of-memory errors, significantly hurting system performance and scalability. This paper proposes a systematic approach that can help data-parallel tasks(More)
In this paper we propose a simple yet effective image interpolation algorithm based on autoregressive model. Unlike existing algorithms which rely on low resolution pixels to estimate interpolation coefficients, we optimize the interpolation coefficients and high resolution pixel values jointly from one optimization problem. Although the two sets of(More)
Visual sensing, such as vision based localization, navigation, tracking, are crucial for intelligent robots, which have shown great advantage in many robotic applications. However, the market is still in lack of a powerful visual sensing platform to deal with most of the visual processing tasks. In this paper we introduce a powerful and efficient platform,(More)
According to the compressed sensing (CS) theory, we can sample a sparse signal at a rate that is (much) lower than the required Nyquist rate, while still enabling a nearly exact reconstruction. Image signals are sparse when represented in a certain domain, and because of this, a large number of CS-based image sampling and reconstruction techniques have been(More)
Subpixel-based down-sampling is a method that can potentially improve the apparent resolution of a down-scaled image by controlling individual subpixels rather than pixels. However, the increased luminance resolution often comes at the price of chrominance distortion. A major challenge is to suppress color fringing artifacts while maintaining sharpness. In(More)
